    Thisngurl has been kicking around for a while now, she spent most of her life in a window sill, being moved into the tent at night to prevent her getting 12/12, whilst being topped/fim'd repeatedly
    The purpose of this being to keoo her as short as possible but build up a huge root system!
    I put her in flower just over a week ago and she has sprung to life! I wish I had better light for her but I'm making do with what I have!

    This was her at 12 weeks (ish) old in her 1 gal pot, cute right! 20171209_182604.jpg

    Fast forward 2 weeks and she's in a 20L pot and extending that root ball, no more topping, just bending and tucking into place to try and form a decent canopy, at this point she was under just the vipar 300w (135 real watts) 20180115_233126.jpg

    This is today..
    At a rough guess she's 18 weeks old.
    When I switched to flower I added in the only extra light I had, a 300w dual spectrum (2700k+6400k) cfl bulb
    I'm hoping I've done what I can to maximise what I can pull from this cheap light set up.
    Any pointers to make the most of this girl would be greatly appreciated! 20180125_064341.jpg

    Once they've sprouted their 5th or 6th node it's good to go :)

    16-18 inches seems about right, 12 inches for flower

    I've added cfl just because I had it there, but I did some research first.
    There's grow experiments where they use 3 separate tents.
    Tent 1 = 600w led
    Tent 2 = 600w cfl
    Tent 3 = 300w cfl + 300w led

    Tent 3 blew the other two out the water! Same wattage used but they liked the variation in spectrum by the looks of it

    For real, that's crazy, I just bought some 23 watt cfl 5000k after i bought them I saw on a thread or somewhere its better to use 6500k or 2700 k.

    Yea from what I've read, 6000+ for veg, -3000 for bloom
    My 300w bulb is half and half 6400k and 2700k
    I think 3500 is the best middle ground, it will veg and bloom okay

    Very similar to sour diesel! And very frosty!
    My first attempt was tiny but the buds got really fat! 20180115_010944.jpg
